51 Charming Vintage Portrait Photos of American-African Young Girls From Between the 1860s and 1890s

Photos of women of color, especially during the Victorian era, are hard to come by. But thanks to this collection, dating from 1860 to 1901, we now have the chance to see some of their portraits. Some of these were taken when there was still slavery in the United States.

Unfortunately, many of these photos are unnamed, which make us wonder who these women were, what they were like, and what their stories were. We’ll probably never know. Nevertheless, here's a collection of 51 wonderful portraits of young Victorian women of color.

  1. Very nice photos from the Victorian Era. I can tell that some of them are mixed race, more than likely have white fathers and black mothers... Still the portraits were very well put together.
